Rebozo

What is it?

Rebozo is a traditional Mexican scarf used by midwifes and doulas around the world to offer care adapted to the different phases of woman’s life. 

Rebozo is often used on the way to motherhood, but equally offers possibilities to heal, rebalance and support all the women.

It is a beautiful tool that provides therapeutic qualities of deep cellular body work, relaxation, tension release, by cocooning, enveloping, and rocking.  

How can Rebozo help you?

Rebozo helps you to honor the life steps taken, to meet your strengths but also your vulnerability. It creates space for benevolent sharing, bonding and welcoming you as you are with no place for judgment.

Rebozo allows to take care of women with subtle kindness and to support their specific needs by offering them a moment when they can allow themselves to slow down, resource and reconnect.

IN YOUR WORDS…

"I was lucky enough to be offered a Rebozo Closing Treat by Monika. A relaxing and magical moment, which is good for the body and the mind after childbirth. Accompanied by candlelight and perfectly chosen music, I was able to travel to Mexico for an hour, the country of origin of this treatment! I regret that I missed the Rebozo Opening Treatment - maybe for my 4th child 😉 To try absolutely! Thanks Monika!"

"I did a Rebozo treatment with Monika. An initial time of exchange allowed us to discuss a little about my birth experience. Then, Monika started the treatment, enveloping and rocking me. It was an extraordinary moment that brought me a lot, both physically and morally. I particularly recommend Rebozo to all women, and Monika who was remarkably kind and gentle."

"I tried rebozo with Monika 6 weeks post partum and it was such a special experience - I felt physically better afterwards as my hips and pelvis felt tightened (they had been feeling uncomfortably loose and open before), and emotionally it was such a lovely cocooning sensation that brought me gently into a new chapter from the efforts of labour back into my womanhood and new motherhood. It has to be tried to be understood!"
